Koryo Tours presentation on a tour that took them to regions most people wouldn’t even think of going to - This is a trip deep into Magadan province to the abandoned city of Kadykchan or "Death Valley"

One of Russia’s remotest and most isolated regions, the name is instantly recognisable to those familiar with the works of Solzhenitsyn, Shalamov, and other Gulag historians and chroniclers. A place hundreds of thousands of people were shipped to never to return during the darkest days of Stalin’s Soviet Union, but also a place of stunning natural beauty and an interesting contemporary lifestyle far removed from the European Russia we are more familiar with.

Be one of the very few people to have ever laid eyes on the  city of Kadykchan - Don't miss is it the next time!

Travelling to a Ghost Town in Russia (2011)

  1. One of Russia’s remotest and most isolated regions, the name is instantly recognisable to those familiar with the works of Solzhenitsyn, Shalamov, and other Gulag historians and chroniclers. A place hundreds of thousands of people were shipped to never to return during the darkest days of Stalin’s Soviet Union, but also a place of stunning natural beauty and an interesting contemporary lifestyle far removed from the European Russia we are more familiar with. Far from the ‘normal’ Russian tourist trail and so far removed from the rest of Russia even today that the locals refer to the rest of the country as ‘the mainland’, this province has no railway line linking it to any other area and the only road that runs in from outside (the Kolyma highway ‘the road of bones’ from Yakutsk, over 2000 km away) is only passable in winter and takes 4 days in good conditions.<br />Continuing our tradition of groundbreaking new tours to regions most people wouldn’t even think of going to, Koryo Tours is proud to present a presentation of the most exciting trips we have ever offered – Don’t miss it next time!<br />www.koryogroup.com<br />

  10. This was once a fairly populous mining town, with (at the time) modern facilities and buildings, schools, apartment complexes, workplaces and so on. From the establishment of the city in the early 1970’s up until the mid 80’s life was lived as normal in remote parts of Russia but as the economy began the downward spiral that would end in the dissolution of the Soviet Union and exodus of the population began. In 2006 a winter even harsher than normal hit and pipes froze while relief vehicles failed to arrive and the danger of starvation reared its head for the remaining population. Finally evacuated by the Russian military they left behind one of the largest and most well preserved ghost towns in the world.<br />www.koryogroup.com<br />

  14. Still all standing, albeit in various states of disrepair, the city bears some similarities to Pripyat in the Ukraine (the abandoned town next to the Chernobyl reactor). A chilling and life-changing experience for any visitor this is somewhere exceptionally difficult to reach but the rewards; in memories, and some of the most remarkable photos you will ever take, make it utterly worthwhile<br />www.koryogroup.com<br />
